Disney+ has expanded its existing partnership with Fornite creator Epic Games to offer new customers two months of Disney+ for free when they make in-app Fortnite purchases using real money. The promotion is good from Nov. 11 through Dec. 31, 2020 for Fortnite players ages 18+. This is the latest collaboration between a long-standing partnership between Disney and Epic Games.
“We’re always looking for ways to add value for our Fortnite players, whether it’s with gameplay or other types of entertainment experiences,” said Adam Sussman, president of Epic Games, in a statement. “Extending our partnership with Disney lets us further expand on that value, unlocking an incredible amount of entertainment for our players on Disney’s growing streaming platform, and just in time for ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2.”
“After years of a strong relationship between Disney and Epic, we’re excited to expand on our collaboration with the new Disney+ Fortnite offer,” said Michael Paull, president of Disney+, in a statement. “We’re coming up on the 1-year anniversary of Disney+ and delighted to mark the occasion by extending the Disney+ experience and incredible content to Fortnite’s passionate fans.”
To redeem this offer, Fornite players can visit the redemption website after making a real-money purchase. Eligible new Disney+ subscribers will need to set up a Disney+ account. After up to two months of free streaming, viewers will be rolled into a subscription at $6.99/month.
